Medieval Dynasty isn’t just about survival, it’s also about own village build in a peaceful valley. However, a village does not only consist of houses and production buildings. You also need villagersto fill it with life. In this guide you will learn:
- How you get workers
- What work they can do
- How to keep your villagers happy
In order for you to be able to recruit villagers, you need a functioning infrastructure. You can find out how to optimally set them up from the start in our guide to buildings in Medieval Dynasty.
This is how you recruit villagers
As soon as the first buildings of your new village are in place, you have a well-stocked food store and a material store stocked with firewood, you can recruit first villagers. You can find potential villagers in other villages. Your new settlers sit around a campfire, waiting for you to recruit them. All you have to do is talk to them and choose the appropriate conversation option. They are already on their way to your village.
basic needs of your villagers
In order for your villagers to work as efficiently as possible and to enjoy living in your village, you have to keep an eye on their satisfaction. Otherwise, they will gradually become unhappier and may even leave the settlement. You must meet these basic needs:
- sleeping places
- food and water
You create sleeping places automatically as soon as you complete houses. The houses also have a direct impact on the happiness of your villagers. The higher the level of the house, the happier the residents will be. That’s why it’s advisable to go directly to houses with wooden walls instead of building the small booths with wicker walls and upgrading later.
food you produce at the beginning with the help of the hunting lodge and fields. water you can either make them available via a well or you can build your settlement right next to a body of water that the villagers can use.
In addition, they need enough firewoodto heat their homes. This resource becomes immensely important, especially in winter, since the consumption of firewood doubles here. In addition, the villagers’ automatic wood production takes a lot of work off your hands.

What can my villagers do?
Of course, the space in your village is not given for free – the new villagers also have to work. For that you have to assign to different production buildings. These have different numbers of jobs and of course also produce different goods. For example, you can use a woodshed to produce wood and firewood, while a hunting lodge provides your village with meat and leather.
Especially at the beginning of the game, when you still have a few villagers, you should focus on the essential resources: food, water and wood. If you manage to optimize the production chains and fill your warehouses with these resources, you then devote yourself to other construction projects.
Why aren’t my workers working?
Your new villagers have arrived in your village, have their own houses and are well fed. You also assigned her to a job – anyway your workers do not work?
To chop wood and till fields they need the right tool. So you have to provide them with an axe, pickaxe and shovel. You either produce the tools yourself or have them made in the workshop. In order for the workers to have access to them, you put them in the chests of the individual production buildings. Now everything should work smoothly.
Increases the efficiency of your workers
Practice makes perfect – also in Medieval Dynasty. Workers gain experience as they practice a job. Once they gain enough experience, they level up and become more efficient at crafting. Up to 10 levels can they rise like this.
By the way, every villager already has one own skills, before he or she came to your village. So you should use them where their strengths lie and try to leave the villagers with a job. You can view villager skills by holding down the Alt key and focusing on the worker. This is even possible before recruitment – so you can target look for workers with special skills.
Provision for the future: Children get in Medieval Dynasty
Children are an important part of your village life in Medieval Dynasty. On the one hand for you personally: In the event of your death or as soon as your inheritance is old enough, you as keep your own child playing. On the other hand for the growth of your village when your villagers have children.
NPCs only have children if a man and a woman live together in a house. These can then become a pair and have a child after three seasons. As soon as it is born, the mother will look after the child’s upbringing for two years – during this time she will not work. This can become problematic if the woman works in a critical profession (farmer or cattle breeder) and suddenly she is confronted with withered fields or dead animals. So let maternity leave flow into your planning from the start. You can also assign a man directly for essential jobs, since he will always be working.
In order to have children of your own, you must first get married. So you have to find a suitable bride first. This can either be a resident of the other villages or you can find your beloved among your villagers. However, there are a few restrictions: Your bride must be at least 18 years old and your age difference must not be greater than 10 years.
Once you have chosen a lady, you increase her affection towards you with the help of conversations and various gifts. Once the affection meter reaches 100, you can marry her. Then she moves into your house and you can decide to have children with her.
